Council recently celebrated the latest upgrade at Ross Reserve with the official launch of the new synthetic soccer pitch.

Located behind the Ross Reserve Sports Pavilion, which was opened late last year, the pitch has already proved popular with local users including for club training, casual games and community programs.

The ground is used by Springvale City Soccer Club, Sandown Lions Football Club and Noble Park Junior Football Club, and recently hosted a Go Soccer Mums program run by Reclink Australia to encourage local mums to get active and learn new skills.

Greater Dandenong Mayor, Cr Lana Formoso said Ross Reserve was a great community asset.

“Ross Reserve has long been a gathering point for sport in our community, and now more people than ever will be coming here to get active and take advantage of the wonderful new facilities.”

The $2.3 million project was partly funded by Council and a $1.75 million grant from the Victorian Government’s Community Sports Infrastructure Stimulus Program.

The Ross Reserve precinct is in Memorial Drive, Noble Park and includes the word-class Noble Park Skate ParkNoble Park Aquatic Centre (NPAC), the All Abilities Playground, Noble Park Community Centre, athletics track, sports ovals, dog off-leash area, picnic area and fitness equipment.
